SpaceTrack - Perl application to fetch satellite orbit data.
This application provides a command-line interface to the Astro::SpaceTrack module, based on the Astro::SpaceTrack::shell subroutine.
This gives you interactive access to all Astro::SpaceTrack methods, plus pseudo output redirection (with tilde expansion) if you want your output to go to a file.
Commands can be passed in on the command line. After all command-line commands have been processed, you get an interactive prompt unless one of the command-line commands was 'exit'. Beginning with 0.014, commands can also be piped in, or redirected in from a file.
The one and only option is -filter, which sets the 'filter' attribute of the Astro::SpaceTrack object. This prevents informational output (such as the banner and 'OK' messages) to STDOUT. The idea is that with -filter asserted, you can pipe the output to another program, and only have orbital elements written to the pipe.
Please see Astro::SpaceTrack for the details.
The author wishes to thank Dr. T. S. Kelso of http://celestrak.com/ and the staff of http://www.space-track.org/ (whose names are unfortunately unknown to me) for their co-operation, assistance and encouragement in the development of the Astro::SpaceTrack module.
